“Time to review their star rating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

I booked this hotel because it was supposedly a four star and the closest hotel to Vector Arena. The hotel itself is obviously quite old from the architecture. The reception staff were very nice. I was shocked at the state of the hallway carpet on the way to our room, it looked like a group of mechanics with oil on their boots had been walking on it ! Luckily the room was ok. It is in a quiet area a short walk to Vector Arena.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

$132 including credit card fee for a room with a view, and we were very happy. Standing at the window we could easily see from the Harbour Bridge around to 'The Cloud' and the old Harbourside building. Lovely at night.

From memory the room was functional enough, everything worked (which is one of my top criteria!), and the bed was a king. Windows opened a bit which is always nice. I don't think we tried the aircon as we preferred to have the natural breeze through the window through the night.

As other reviews have said, the hotel itself is nothing flash. Nor does it pretend to be. I probably wouldn't stay in a room that didn't have a harbour view room because depending on the circumstances of the trip I'd either be staying somewhere more budget, or I'd be staying somewhere nice and/or with a view.

So I'd happily stay in a harbour view room here again.

Even though we only spent the night, the room was more than comfy and the breakfast buffet the following morning was excellent.
Didn't get the opportunity to try the gym out but it looked very good. Would definitely stay here again next time in Auckland.

couldn't believe this was a 4 star hotel - felt like a backpackers, with a dingy incredibly basic room, age old grouting in the bathroom. add to that $40 charge for parking which is at the upper end of the price range. uggh, i SO won't be staying here again.

This hotel is on the waterfront in Auckland so I had a beautiful view of the ocean. It's a bit older and simply worn down. It's clean, has a small gym, a complimentary breakfast and friendly staff - this is why I gave them the average rating instead of poor. You can get a limited amount of free wifi in the lobby, but not in your room. Wifi is expensive. Hop, skip and a jump to shopping, restaurants, etc.

Stayed here to go to the Beyonce concert. Was close to the venue and the price was reasonable, but felt "ripped off" for most of the stay. Rooms were tired. The bathrooms were grubby, the tiles need replacing. There was a stain on the bedspread on one of the beds in the room. I went down to ask for a newspaper and the staff offered to "go across the road and buy one" for me for a 100% mark up. I said that I would go over to the shop myself and pay retail. The $18 deal for breakfast was good, but did not like being charged $4 to use my credit card to pay for it. Don't think that I will be staying there again
